The 14th edition of India Foodex 2023 is a much-awaited event. The exposition is an annual gathering of processed food exporters, rice and grain millers, bakery and snack industry owners and professionals involved in this entire gamut.

The Federation of Karnataka Chamber of Commerce & Industry (FKCCI), Rice Millers Association of Karnataka and many other food, dairy and farm produce organisations are invited to interact with visiting national and international trade visitors, according to organisers.

S Jafar Naqvi, chief co-ordinator, India Foodex, said, “India Foodex 2023 will showcase innovative products and technologies from over 20 countries. The event is a platform for Indian agri & food startups to reach the global market.”

India Foodex consists of many parallel activities including GrainTech India, DairyTech India and HoReCa Expo. Sustainable interlinking of diverse farm to fork sectors remains the focus. The regular exhibitors appreciate this diverse visitor profile and come up with product and upgrades to satisfy ever changing challenges and requirements of buyers.

“Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC) is one of the best locations for organising international expositions. The location is a bit away from the main city centre and this distance ensures that only genuine trade visitors come to the exposition centre. Those who want to do business in food processing and food exports. A very large number of over 60,000 trade visitors are targeted to visit the three-day exposition,” said Naqvi.

The biggest agro & food exposition attracts numerous new companies as exhibitors every year. The organisations from abroad come looking for partnerships in India. Indian representatives set up stalls to showcase products of their own, as also products and services of their collaborators. “We expect to see products & services of over 1,200 companies from India and abroad during the upcoming show,” added Naqvi.

India Foodex, along with its co-located expositions on Grain Milling, Dairy Processing, HoReCa, is also a hi-tech processing oriented food production expo in adjacent hall having AgriTech India, FloraTech India, Poultry & Livestock Expo as also Dairy Production and Processing expositions making the programme a complete bouquet. 

“Every visitor finds their own highlight in the exposition. For a professional food processing entrepreneur, presence of seniors from every prominent organisation is highlight. For a budding food processing professional, the diversity of products on display is major takeaway. For a FPO, availability and demonstration of technology required to convert their agriculture into full-fledged agro food enterprise, is a highlight. For us, the organisers, its happy faces of satisfied visitors and exhibitors that we see at the expo are our achievements,” stated Naqvi.

The show has been used by many multinational organisations as an entry point to India’s flourishing food sector. Country pavilions and official pavilions are from Turkey, the United Kingdom, Canada, Spain and USA.

“India Foodex 2023, is in 14th year of a consistently growing exposition. This year we have a United Kingdom Pavilion coming up during the show. Every year, new country pavilions come up. Members of the delegation tie-up with Indian organisations and they become Indian companies. Year 2023 is challenging in a sense as the entire industry is coming back to the track that it left during Covid-19. Many traditional segments of food were badly affected but, at the same time, many newer segments emerged in this changed world. India Foodex 2023, will reflect these changing scenarios,” said Naqvi.

The programme is used by many organisations to organise parallel activities. Distributors meets, annual general meets, conferences and seminars are organised by many associations. This year, Karnataka State Rice Millers Association is hosting their Annual General Meeting and a national seminar on Innovations in Rice Milling Industry concurrently to the show.

AFSTI (Association of Food Scientists & Technologists in India), is hosting a national summit on millets, milling, processing, value addition and potential of products exports keeping in mind the International Year of Millets to encourage more value addition in millet crops.
